French ice dancer, Gabriella Papadakis, suffered what she called a ‘worst nightmare’ after exposing her breast to millions of viewers at the ongoing Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
The 22-year-old skater and her partner Guillaume Cizeron, 23, were performing their routine when glittering emerald costume got unhooked at the neckline and this left her breast exposed live on television.
But the French couple were able to overcome the wardrobe malfunction, as they went ahead to produce a score of 81.93 points on Monday, living them second behind Canadian stars Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
Meanwhile, the rules state that losing any part of a costume, even a hair clip, can lead to a one-point deduction. It’s yet unknown if the judges will take any decision on couple’s wardrobe issue.
Speaking on the situation, Gabriella said: ‘It was pretty distracting, kind of my worst nightmare happening at the Olympics. ‘I told myself, “I don’t have a choice. I have to keep going,” and that’s what we did. I think we can be proud of ourselves being able to deliver a great performance with that happening.’
